How long is long for constipation in a 10mo baby before I bring her to see the PD. Today is the fourth day baby hasn't popped and this is the first time. Previously her poo is hard but she still poos everyday or every other day although she has to squeeze hard. But this time she doesn't even really squeeze, it is as if she doesn't feel stomach pain or urge to poo at all. I give her probiotics drops everyday already. And her diet consists of mostly veggies and sweet potatoes. I have also given her yoghurt this week to help her poo but she still did not. Also tried tummy massage but still no use . Any advice
Is your LO breastfed or formula fed?
Oh dear. I think u need to really up up the water intake. I think u can wait a couple of days more and try some massage. Massage stomach in a circular motion (if baby is facing u, it's clockwise direction for ur hands) after baths and after eating (rest a while). Can also try to massage/stroke the tailbone in an top to tail end motionRead more
I add a dash of water to everything. Fm I will put 10ml more water. Whatever purée, I also add a few dashes of water more. I also give water via sippy cup a few times during the meal
Perhaps you may like to consider giving her a teaspoon of vco? Chilled solid vco doesn't have much taste, and it can help with popping. Definitely see a doctor if you are concerned. My child has gone a week without pooping around 4 months old but that was when she was exclusively breastfed.Read more
I got them from NTUC finest. I've seen some kiddy palace, cold storage selling them too. Iherb has a wide range too.
- Hello mummies! Need some serious advice and I’m going crazy. My 5 weeks new baby is struggling to fall asleep during the day even after feeding, diaper change and swaddled her. We will need to walk around while carrying her, rock and pat her but, after we put her down and within 5 to 10 mins, she will wake up crying again. Most of the time she will wake up trying very hard to fart or poo until she burst out crying. We’re giving her all sorts of tummy massage and ridwind but she is still squeezing real hard until her face turn red and cry. What else can i do to help her sleep, fart and poo better? First world problem.
- my lo is 2months and i realise she is not pooing as often as last time! her diapers are not as wet/full as before realised this when i start to direct latch, i never time how long lo latches but i latch her until she falls asleep or sleeps even after burping. used to feed ebm about 130-160ml previously, and yes it's a lot but my lo doesnt vomit. sometimes even when i feed her 130ml she still cries and sucks her thumb guessing it isnt enough.
- Hi parents! what are your personal views on giving your LO <6months? ive read it that it is dangerous and i caught my MIL giving water to my 1 month baby 🤯🤯 we keep emphasize not to give but she is those old school type said that we shouldnt believe dr and nothing had happen so far (she claimed all the kids she took care before were well) my concern is.. once i start working, my LO will be under her care. im in dilemma rn..i understand we too drink plain water back then in the olden days..but after doing some reading, i just dont want to take the risk. afterall its my child not hers. jialat la like this.
